    He's a sook and he needs to focus on his own output / cutting down on stupid flicks and tricks before deciding he's our barometer.

    he puts an awful lot of effort into drawing up jokes which aren’t that funny imo

    David Squires, does a strip weekly on the Grauniad and is usually a good take on the weeks events in footy. He also has a few books out...

    It’s possible to take contrarianism too far, you know.

    The 'all competitions' is a bit of an unfair way of skewing that stat. How many goals have Norwich, West Ham etc conceded in the CL?

    Been coming for some time that stat.
    Something hasn't been right at the back since our defeat to Burnley.

    As far as my thoughts are now...Please Levy just get rid of Mourinho. He’s done nothing for the team, keeps wheeling out excuses and blaming anyone but himself. Maybe others disagree with what I’ve said, but honestly, I think that the sooner he goes, the better.

    Don’t want him to waste money in the summer buying his kind of players when I don’t want him to be manager.

    Whose coming into this set up now...
    We have to literally bin off 7/8 players
    And buy in replacements
    That’s not appealing to anyone

    Mourinho is a complete numpty and I didn't want him here. I think this will end in tears for us and I said that at the beginning.

    He has also been dealt a tough hand but he is currently playing it very poorly regardless.

    Having said that, there's part of me that feels a bit sorry for him. He's losing personal records left, right and centre, making new negative ones for himself too.

    He still had some cache after Man Utd, though I assume our level probably still isn't quite what he imagined. After he's done with us, I doubt he'll be in the conversation for these kinds of jobs at all.

    We need a HUGE rebuilding job and I really don't feel Mourinho, especially current Mourinho, is the man for that. Alas, he is who we have and so we must hope that he spends wisely and that Levy releases some money and makes aggressive moves.

    Was, and am, willing to give Mourinho the benefit of the doubt. He had a plan and that was unbalanced by injuries. But I lost some respect for him tonight.

    1. for his team selection. We looked shyte playing 5 at the back at the weekend and needed more in midfield. Same again tonight. We had Verts and Ndombele on the bench all game, two players with CL experience who imo should have started.

    2. in the face of adversity, he bitched and moaned, blaming his own players. When we lost Son, the way he moped and almost gave up (to the media) set the tone.

    3. he needs to play the same side to let it gel and work. For me that is a side with a bolstered midfield - 3 or 5 in the middle - to help us defend and control games. Ironically we are wide open with 5 at the back.

    Still it is too early to pass judgment. He needs a pre-season. He needs fit players.

    A win against United and we'll feel a lot better.

    I thought his assistant Sacramento was supposed to be a progressive, up and coming coach?
    You’d hope he might have some different ideas and some influence with Mourinho.

    I’ll be stunned if we can field a first 11 to be honest
    Sanchez pulled out a couple of hours before the game ... I believe he may have been playing where Dier was and winks may have missed out (May explain why really didn’t fit in tonight)

    and I’m also sure Dele and Dier I’ll get their band this week too so won’t be able to play

    Sacramento seems to be getting quieter and quieter on the bench. He rarely moves from it now during games and seems to say very little, as opposed to Mourinho’s first games in charge when he was constantly in his ear.

    No chance - this is a 'Wenger & Bould' double act where one has all the say and the other just puts out the cones and drinks
